ICE program securely implanted throughout California 

There were more than a few hiccups along the way, but Immigrations and Customs Enforcement announced Friday that they are now connected to every county in California through the Secure Communities fingerprint identification program.

Six northern California jurisdictions - Alpine, Del Norte, Lassen, Sierra, Siskiyou and Trinity counties – linked to the controversial program this week, meaning all 58 counties in the state now send information that is funneled through the state Department of Justice and then sent to the FBI, ICE and other federal authorities.

That doesn’t mean activists aren’t still trying to quash the program. A letter asking state Attorney General Kamala Harris to opt out of the program was sent during her transition to state office, yet she has yet to respond.
